    I remember Rocky Mount and the Big East folks complaining about having to find non-conference games. I reckon that they are too scared to travel.

    One thing to remember here too is the number of non-conference games that the tri-county teams had to find. That has to be a task to coordinate, Im glad Lee Co is playing a quality oppenent this week but look at the drive they have to Morehead City, thats a haul. Personally I would rather see them play a team more "west" like a Ashboro, or Strong Rowan County team.

    NM definitely dropped UP. But, they always fought hard.

    Can't understand why UP scheduled Albemarle after NM dropped UP (or the other way around perhaps). Sure, scheduling Pinecrest would have been suicidal but would have brought a huge gate. This game should be a rout.

    I agree with you, but seems like 3A playing 1A is try to get a win. After last week and what I saw of the D and O lines for UP, it maybe what they need. Is this the first year for those coaches as it seems like last year they were a lot better

    I agree that it has to help in the long run to play better teams. Classifications aren't ALWAYS the best indicator. Lee County has played three 4A schools (Wakefield, Holly Springs, and Hoke). Northwood (3-1) was 3A and may be the best team Lee Co has played thus far. Wakefield and Holly Springs had no passing game and Hoke, while they have some talent, seemed unorganized and not good defensively.

    Why is UP playing a 1A school ! Lee County has the right idea and steps to play big schools in non conference. After last week it is clear that UP has long way to go, D is not good and O line looks bad. Lee County is going to rule the conference as they are a solid team
